Having read in some 'guides' to using a 2nd removable HD as a backup that you should never let a machine boot with your two bootable WinXP partitions, I have to ask: Is it true that allowing XP to boot on a machine with two identical partitions on it will trash both? Does it scan all drives and assume that two partitions with the same name are the same drive? If so, why??? This is incredibly stupid if so. It makes all sorts of pragmatic uses of XP impossible. Or if not, what might someone be misunderstanding to claim this?
